Splittet
Member since Jul-28-07 · Last seen Dec-25-12
The worst kind of kibitzer - a total patzer and Magnus Carlsen fan, with only Rybka to guide him...

   Dec-02-12 London Chess Classic (2012) (replies)
 
Splittet: On the male versus female thing: I think the most common explanation is hormones related to puberty, are giving males an advantage. It's a very specific kind of advantage though, and not intelligence related. It consists of there appearing a single-mindedness gap between men and ...
 
   May-30-12 Anand - Gelfand World Championship Match (2012) (replies)
 
Splittet: Certainly a good result for chess. If Anand had lost, Carlsen would be the de facto world champion. Gelfand would have been completely without legitimacy. The landscape of chess has changed. It's much closer at the top than it ever was. FIDE needs to have a serious think about the ...

Splittet: I'm a fan Frogbert, but you should really have counted Aronian among the favourites. He is in excellent shape and a 2800! Has he really been as consistently poor in blitz as Topalov? That would have been the only argument against him.

Splittet: <Appaz>: I don't think frogbert should think about earning money on it or anything. It will lead to overjustification effects ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overju... ), making it less enjoyable for him run the live ratings, taking the fun out of it. The thought of being of ...

Splittet: Now let's hope Ivanchuk wins over Anand, and we will have an incredible fight for the first place in the Elo list!

Splittet: Morezevich will win this game 95 % certain.
 
   Aug-20-08 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
 
Splittet: <Was it too small for you when Kramnik had his bad performaces in 2002-05?> Yes, it was. Let me quote http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail... : "It appears that a K-Factor of 24 is optimal. For smaller values, the ratings are too slow to change, and so ratings are not as ...
 
   Aug-03-08 Chess Classic Mainz (2008) (replies)
 
Splittet: <you vs yourself> But there are differences between coming back after a loss in a normal tournament and in a rapid match, 10 minutes since you lost, against a player you have a terrible record against and who is the best (rapid) player in the world...
 
   Jul-28-08 Carlsen vs E Alekseev, 2008 (replies)
 
Splittet: Maybe Magnus was too confident he would handle the complications arising after the queen exchange better?
 
   Jul-27-08 Rybka (Computer) (replies)
 
Splittet: <zanshin> It was about 80 Elo improvement before they changed the poor time management inherited from Rybka 2.3.2a at the last minute, which has made Rybka 3 earn another 50 Elo points or so. I guess it says something about how important time management can be. 50 Elo at top ...
